A Poem Dedicated To My Art

A very dear friend of mine, who is also like an older brother to me, wrote this Pashto poem as a dedication to my art exhibit, which took place last weekend, and was done for a very noble fund-raising cause to help the Pashtun/Pakhtun children in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa and Afghanistan.

(I will be providing the English translation shortly.)

Da da rangono laolakai sok da
Da da bodai da taal talai sok da
Da da rangono khaperai sok da
Da ye pa sha dagha kochai sok da
Da makhamakh da malalai sok da
Da Esap(Yousaf) makhey Esapzai sok da
Da da Qudrat dao’li dalai sok da

Da da khpal qaam da wago tago bacho
Gham ke rawatey khpal ‘hunar’ kharsawee
Da khpal zra ser kharsawee,
Qaimati zar kharsawee
Stargey nazar kharsawee

Rashai zama na tol rangona wakhlai
Zama da zra da bagh gulona wakhlai
Rashai zama na taswirona wakhlai
Wago bacho la khwarakona wakhlai
Warla sabaq la kitaboona wakhlai
Warla umeed au armanona wakhlai
warla jolai jolai gulona wakhlai
